Ways to find New Customers for your Direct Sales Home Business

Finding new customers sounds tough for direct sales, but a few easy social networking tipsĀ are all you need before word of mouth and referrals start pouring in.

  1. Online networking is a great way to network. Writing a blog and updating often is a great way to give a broad range of people information about your product and what you do. You can also promote your products through your blog and send people to your website, catalogues, etc.
  2. Writing a press release, or hiring someone to write you a press release, is a great way to get the word out. You can send your press release to local and city newspapers, free online press release sites, tv stations and radio stations. You can write about what you do and who you are, but do not try to sell. The goal is to get your name and your product out, not to convince people to buy it.
  3. Hosting an Open House is a fun way to start selling your products. Set up a few sample areas and catalogues, buy some cookies and make a pot of coffee and let the fun times roll. Invite everyone you know and put up fliers around town. You can advertise the same as advertising a garage sale at the beginning. You will be surprised to see how many people stop by and will become future customers.
  4. Writing a book or ebook about your product and the way you started direct sales is a great way to catch people’s attention and make you look like an expert in your field. This will increase credibility and more people will be more inclined to listen to what you have to say.
